2009 summer trends are more timeless.
Dresses for the coming summer 2009 are to be in light cotton batiste and silks for girls and poplin-based materials for boys in more sober styles, said fashion experts. Material quality and cut will be key to the summer season.
A trend called "treasures of the sea" aims to balance function and looks, using materials such as linen, serge, cotton and seersucker, with simple graphic design. Blouses and tops are combined with long pirate trousers.
Sports and swimming wear for toddlers and older kids will aim at comfort, combined with bright, clean colours and printed fabrics in sky blue nuances, according to some buyers.
